The Pirates! Band of Misfits (2012)

Hugh Grant will head up the cast lending their voice talent to Sony Pictures' clay-mation film - The Pirates! Band of Misfits (aka - The Pirates! In An Adventure with Scientists in the UK). Based in part on Gideon Dafoe's book.

Set in Victorian London, the movie will see Grant's character do battle with the pirate-hating Queen Victoria (Imelda Staunton) and team up with a young Charles Darwin (David Tennant).

Synopsis:
"Hugh Grant, starring in his first animated role, is the luxuriantly bearded Pirate Captain – a boundlessly enthusiastic, if somewhat less-than-successful, terror of the High Seas. With a rag-tag crew at his side (Martin Freeman, Brendan Gleeson, Russell Tovey, and Ashley Jensen), and seemingly blind to the impossible odds stacked against him, the Captain has one dream: to beat his bitter rivals Black Bellamy (Jeremy Piven) and Cutlass Liz (Salma Hayek) to the much coveted Pirate Of The Year Award. It's a quest that takes our heroes from the shores of exotic Blood Island to the foggy streets of Victorian London. Along the way they battle a diabolical queen (Imelda Staunton) and team up with a haplessly smitten young scientist (David Tennant), but never lose sight of what a pirate loves best: adventure!"

Release date: March 30, 2012 (North America)
